"Moorelands Wilderness Camp is a wonderful place to learn about who you are and how you can grow to meet your full potential. I will never forget the amazing things they taught me about myself and all the hard work put into giving every kid a childhood, thank you all so much."

“Moorelands is about giving kids a safety net and learning to rely on one another. It’s about taking people out of their home environment to show them what’s possible. Moorelands has the ability to show young people how society can work better.”

“As a child, I was able to spend many summers at Moorelands, surrounded by great friends, fun and loving counsellors and of course immersed in nature. I was able to discover myself, my strengths and my weaknesses. I longed to be on the island as soon as the warm weather hit."

“Two weeks at camp is like four months in the city in terms of learning…Moorelands taught me how to have friendships. It’s where I learned to trust, to problem solve, to communicate properly…80% of what I’ve learned, I learned at camp.”
